Rain has been steady today in many areas, but not as heavy as what we saw in parts of the ArkLaTex on Monday. Downpours are expected to return later tonight and into Wednesday and more flash flooding could occur as a result. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for the entire area through 6pm Wednesday.
